Received from the CDC via email 8/6/2012

We are happy to share with you the CDC Health Equity Resource Toolkit for State Practitioners Addressing Obesity Disparities from Division of Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Obesity.

The goal is to increase the capacity of state health departments and their partners to work with and through communities to implement effective responses to obesity in populations that are facing health disparities. The Toolkit's primary focus is on how to create policy, systems, and environmental changes that will reduce obesity disparities and achieve health equity.

The Toolkit can be found on the Center for Training and Research Translation's (Center TRT) website, www.centertrt.org, click on Health Equity tab.

We hope you will share this innovative resource widely.

Coming this spring will be a web-based training to compliment the Toolkit. This training will: (1) inform States, communities and their partners on the purpose and use of the toolkit; (2) orient practitioners on the range of specific approaches and interventions for disparate populations; and (3) assist in the selection and integration of interventions with appropriate environmental and policy strategies and approaches into existing programs or the implementation of new programs to achieve health equity.
